Humanities Guåhan COVID-19 Response

Hågatña, Guam—In an effort to foster social distancing as part of our island’s COVID-19 response, Humanities Guåhan is suspending ongoing in-person public programs until further notice.

These programs include Community Conversations at the Department of Youth Affairs, and the Motheread/Fatheread family literacy program at Manna Cabin, Zero Down, Yigo, the Salvation Army Lighthouse Recovery Center, and the Department of Corrections RSAT program. Our 2020 Community Grant Workshop will be rescheduled, and we will continue monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic to make further adjustments to the grant schedule.

We will also close the Humanities Guåhan office to in-person visits until further notice. We will continue to be accessible via email and by phone, and we encourage the public to communicate via email.

Humanities Guåhan is a nonprofit organization that provides foundational support and educational programs for the people of Guam. The mission of Humanities Guåhan is to foster community engagement and dialogue, inspire critical thinking, celebrate diversity and enrich the quality of life of island residents through the power of the humanities.
